We received something similar about the 2010 census and I emailed back and asked them to Google their name to see what is already public knowledge about them out in cyber space. They were shocked.
Not sure why we have a climate of negativity concerning anything government.
Several generations from now our descendants will be disappointed with the information they glean from the 2010 census.

We received one of those “the sky is falling” mass emails linking to a utube rant from a guy who said the government was invading everyone’s privacy by taking the census. I suggested that the sender should return his military retirement checks and his Social Security checks if he doesn’t want the government to know where to find him. His step-daughter then took me to task.
I suppose the world has always had crazies. Technology has just given them a broader stage.

This will probably bring a light thought to you genealogically minded folks.  A couple of days ago a Tampa area census enumerator was threatened with a pickaxe when the enumerator wanted to ask him those simple 10 questions.  Of course the man with the pickaxe is facing aggravated battery charges and will spend some time in the cooler.  
I guess the folks in old Tombstone , Arizona would have yanked out his 45 and filled the enumerator full of lead if he had been desirous of eliminating the enumerator.  I don’t think this enumerator in Tampa was actually harmed but was probably scared enough to take leave of his job
